Industrial Undergraduate Courses
As part of your bachelor of engineering degree in industrial engineering, you’ll study industrial system design, operations research, data science, industrial ergonomics, systems modelling and more. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in our optional co-operative internship program, where you’ll gain paid work experience. It’s everything you need to become skilled in finding solutions for processes, productivity and people.
A full description of each course can be found in the undergraduate calendar.
A strong foundation is essential. With courses designed to give you the knowledge you’ll need for the rest of your degree – no matter which engineering discipline you choose – first year lays the groundwork for your future success.
Your second-year studies will continue to advance your knowledge of engineering science basics. You’ll also be introduced to manufacturing methods and engineering design.
All required core courses in the first and second semesters are prerequisites to all required core courses in third and fourth semesters.
This is an exciting time, when the picture of your career comes into focus. During your third year, you’ll gain more specialized industrial engineering knowledge in areas such as data analytics, operations research, quality assurance and facilities design.
You’ll also start planning ahead for next year by researching opportunities for professional experience through our optional co-operative internship program. (Participating in a co-operative internship will add one more year to your degree.)
This year is also the time to consider enrolling in the accelerated master of applied science pathway, for those who intend to pursue further studies after graduation.
All required core courses in the first and second semesters are prerequisites to all required core courses in fifth and sixth semesters.
In fourth year, the focus is on career-preparedness, as well as your own ideas and innovations. You’ll work on a team-based project that focuses on industrial engineering’s impact on society and the environment. Should you wish to pursue more advanced studies, fourth year is also the ideal time to consider applying to one of our graduate studies programs.
Note: Should you participate in a co-operative internship, your fourth year will be spent exclusively working in industry. You’ll complete the rest of your degree the following year, making your program five years in duration.
